This month I have been given the opportunity to work in an event called the Hactoberfest. This event is all about contributing to the open source community for skilled programmers as well as beginners like me. If you create more than 5 pull request by the end of the month, you win a T-shirt. You can find more information about the Hactoberfest here . My course, OSD600, requires me to create 5 pull request by the end on the month. The post is all about my first Hactoberfest pull request.
Creating the first Issue
When I was first given this assignment, it seemed tough and hard to do. After going through the other Hactoberfest issues and pull request, it was easy to find an issue. The good thing about this is that they have a link to guide beginners towards their first pull request on the Hactoberbest.
I found my first issue on Jsonmc. You can find more information about it here . This is all about adding actors, movies and directors. I chose to add the movie “Newton” to the file called movies.

Creating a Pull Request
Creating the pull request was easy as there were many other contributors towards adding movies or actors or directors. I had to create a JSON file for my movie which included the movie name, year, categories, runtime, release date, directors, actors, writers and storyline.

I will be updating this blog with the four other pull request by the end of the month. I am looking forward to contributing to the open source community.
